Shareholders formally approve actions of Board of Management and Supervisory Board and adopt resolution on increased dividend for 2017

  • Marianne Heiß confirmed as new member of the Supervisory Board
  • Dr. Wolfgang Porsche reelected as a member of the Supervisory Board
  • Resolution on significantly higher dividend payment than last year adopted

At the Annual General Meeting 2018, the shareholders of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft voted by a majority of 99.97 percent to approve the recommendation of the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board to pay a dividend of 3.90 (2,00) EUR per ordinary share and 3.96 (2.06) EURO per preferred share for fiscal year 2017. Approximately 2 billion EUR will therefore be distributed. In addition, the resolution on the formal approval of the actions of the members of the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board for fiscal year 2017 was passed by 93.18 percent of the ordinary shareholders represented at the Annual General Meeting.

Furthermore, the Annual General Meeting confirmed Marianne Heiß as a member of the Supervisory Board. She succeeds Annika Falkengren, who resigned from her position on the Supervisory Board as she had taken up a new post as managing partner of the Swiss private bank Lombard Odier. Marianne Heiß has been working for the BBDO Group in various managerial positions since 1996. She has held the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) on the board of management of the BBDO Group Germany since 1 June 2013.

In addition, Dr. Wolfgang Porsche was reelected as a member of the Supervisory Board for a full term.
